First, some good news. As readers here may know, we have had a continuing thread questioning the value of the Canadian support of the current government in Afghanistan. There have been so many incidents of Islamic sharia implemented under the new more ‘liberal’ government that one wonders if we aren’t just replacing one theocratic brutal regime with ‘Taliban Lite’. Here is a photo shoot and article about a peace march, for once actually wishing for peace as opposed to being for war but on the other side, from of all places, Toronto. Pashtun’s, one of the indigenous tribes of Pakistan and Afghanistan and actually one of the tribes for which the anagram name of Pakistan was forged, are trying to raise awareness of how the Taliban is in fact destroying all attempts to build civilization by the Pashtun, destroying all schools for girls and you can bet changing the curriculum for boys to limit it to Quran, Islamic studies and basic rocketry. This is encouraging. Where is the media? same place as always. Out for a drink and looking through their Rolodex for someone at the CIC or Canadian Arab federation to tell them what they are allowed to print. From Atlas Shrugs. The article itself seems a little hastily written but the facts are solid. The Swat Valley in Pakistan is now a Taliban stronghold so much so that the Taliban, now a solid partner of Al Queda is successfully making demands on Pakistan proper to implement sharia. At least this article makes an excellent counter position to ours at Vlad as to why we should be in Afghanistan. If for nothing else, for the Pashtun.
Im sorry to have to post this one. Obama’s administration is taking the US into Durban II, the anti western and anti Semitic hate fest this one based on the preparatory statements made, seem to show it as being far more virulent than Durban I was. Here is an article which shows the best case scenario. Naivete on the part of the Obama admin. I hope Anne Bayefsky, the author of this article is correct and it is nothing more insidious or opportunistic than merely a deluded sense of what he can accomplish for western liberal democracy by US attendance. Thanks to Fred at Gayandright for sending me this. Sample below:
In a major foreign-policy decision taken over the weekend, President Obama has decided to legitimize the United Nations’s “anti-racism” forum known as Durban II. State Department officials announced in a press release buried on Saturday, that starting today the United States will attend for the first time the preparatory meetings of this controversial U.N. conference. The “Durban Review Conference,” scheduled for April in Geneva, is the progenitor of the anti-semitic hatefest that took place in South Africa in early September 2001.
The searing images of the demonization of America and Jews on the U.N.’s global stage, and the terrorism in New York 72 hours later, should have made joining this revived forum for U.N.-driven hate inconceivable. But President Obama seems intent on learning the lessons of history — and the relationship between hatemongering and violence — the hard way.
Here is a depressing article but well backed up with facts and stats about the use of rape of women by Islamists as a weapon of jihad. Te clip below deals with the issue in Australia but goes into detail about how rape was a central tool of Islamics in India along with links to chapter and verse of hadith explaining the ‘logic’ behind it.
The Sydney gang rapes, committed by groups of Muslim men upon Australian women, are still fresh in memory. The men taunted the women while raping them, saying that the women “deserved it” because they were not covered and staying at home as Islam commands women to do.
Now this phenomenon, already so pronounced with small muslim populations (The 2001 census showed the UK had 1.5 million muslims), evolves into something even more sinister as the muslim population rises. Women are kidnapped (they simply vanish in the vast network of “Islamic centers”), used to commit terrorist acts, and so on. Let us look at some such incidents in India in the past few months. First, a bit of historical and theological background.
The very first accounts of the muslim invasions of India, by Mohammed Bin Qasim in 712AD, talk in some detail about the women captured and sexually enslaved. Indeed, it is described as one of the major accomplishments of the subjugation of the Hindus…
Do go to the link to read the rest it’s crucial that we in the west examine India for a template of what is occurring in western lands now. The article ends with this caveat: “Remember, women are always Islam’s first victims.” I am not personally sure if they are the first, but they are certainly the most numerous.
